HSE Stress Awareness

6 Nov 2023

November 1st  marked UK National Stress Awareness Day.

HSE’s statistics show 914,000 workers were suffering from work-related stress, depression or anxiety in 2021/22, the cause of 17 million working days lost in this period.

 

Employers have a legal duty to ensure risks of stress and mental ill health are factored into health and safety risk assessments and acted upon.  

 

HSE's guidance for managing stress at work includes:

•            information about a stress risk assessment

•            our Talking Toolkit, which can help structure conversations with workers to help prevent stress at work

HSE's Working Minds campaign aims to help businesses prevent work-related stress in 5 steps, bringing together practical tools and resources.
